AUTOMATIC COUPLING OF TRAIN ELECTRIC BUS-BARS

AUTOMATISCHE KUPPLUNG DER ELEKTRISCHEN ZUGSAMMELSCHIENE

In the proposed automatic coupling system, only the communication cables and air pipes are connected automatically, and the automatic connection of the electric bus-bars on trains has not as yet been envisaged by the UIC. To optimise the advantages of automatic coupling, the DB's Munich Research Centre, in collaboration with specialist firms, has develped an automatic coupling for electric bus-bars on trains, thus meeting the requirements for remote-controlled automatic coupling. The author describes the operation and testing of the coupling system for electric heating. The tests were carried out on two trains.
